The Dollmaker's New Workshop
...another wooden flower box
and the beginning of the Mandevilla Arbor
Yes, the Dollmaker actually got FOUR DOLLS listed on ETSY
before the Craziness set in....
ajka: (also just known as) Grandfather EarthTime...
Standing Solidly, Unwaveringly, and Eternally in the Present Moment!
And he wants you to join him!
such a Greenish little Man.
See his other side on... ETSY
It HAS been a good year for the Tomatoes!
The Dollmaker's Property has undergone some serious changes:
From this, in September:
to this, in June:
But by the end of the summer, it will hopefully look more like this:
That's right folks, five million blades of grass stood between the Dollmaker
and her goal to rebuild the Storage Units
and that is just
Oh dear! One more month and this would be a pasture!
She hated to have to do it... but that Grass had to go!
But then... a Woo-Woo Thing happened
The Spirit of the Grass showed up.
Now the Spirit of the Grass was Huge- as large as the Earth
and very Jovial.
In fact, It spoke only in Concepts, such as:
and with genuine Unconcern, the Grass communicated this message:
No matter what you do, you can never hurt Me.
Because I am the Grass, and I will be here long after You are Gone.
wow. That was reassuring.
THAT was when it started getting crazy...
and the Summer of Reconstruction began....
The busiest month in the Dollmaker's life...
Bobcats won the battle (if not the war) with the grass...
Potential casualties (patio bricks) were rescued ...
Loads of gravel and crushed concrete were hauled in and unceremoniously dumped...
Four more dead trees were cut down and
stumps were ground and mulch was made...
...and yet another...
S0 many people wanted the
Exhibit to come to Bastrop, that the Organizers decided to
take down the Austin Installation and move the whole thing to
the Jerry Fay Wilhelm Performing Arts Center on Spring Street in Bastrop!
Since the Dollmaker's Donation was already sold, she volunteered to donate
Another one of her "Smokey Doll Constructions" to this good cause.
This sculpture represents the dilemma of a fire victim-
Should I just "Get out of Dodge" and leave this whole burned mess far behind or
Should I stay here and rebuild? The figure clutches "The Hook" which is nothing but an
old burned up padlock... but it's not locked. She can leave any time, but for now she just
sits there, "hooked" to that which will never be the same.
The rest of the "Smokey Doll Construction Clan" wanted to go too
so the Dollmaker packed up the whole strange menagerie
(the Forkfeet Peeple, Rusty the Pencil Sharpener guy, Doorknob Spoonfoot, Can Opener Man etc)
and included them all in the Exhibit.
(Just for show, not for sale.)
But I thought....
Descartes misled us when he said:
"I think, therefore I am."
thereby equating Thinking with Being!
Whoa! Just a second here!
